[Samba] What version plays well with Windows 7?

I am currently running version 3.3.2 on an older Fedora machine that works just fine with XP.  I am trying to get a Win7 machine to work but keep getting trust relationship errors on the final step in the configuration on the Win machine.  

This is the error in the logs:

Jan 17 18:51:00 yoda smbd[32288]:   _netr_ServerAuthenticate2: netlogon_creds_server_check failed. Rejecting auth request from client HPLAP machine account HPLAP$
Jan 17 18:51:00 yoda smbd[32288]: [2011/01/17 18:51:00,  0] rpc_server/srv_netlog_nt.c:_netr_ServerAuthenticate2(546)
I installed the reg hacks to no avail.  I have read some conflicting reports as to the minimum version that works with Win 7 but what is the official answer?  Is it 3.4?

Thanks in advance...
